Tevi Troy: Cantor Right to Ditch Debt Talks

By Dan Weil

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the correct choice in exiting negotiations with Democrats over the debt limit, says Tevi Troy, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute. Cantor bolted because Democratic negotiators insisted on tax increases.

“Republicans, however, recall that Bush lost in 1992, partially as a result of breaking that pledge. Cantor's move shows how serious the Republicans are about sticking to their guns on taxes, and Democrats had better understand that if they want to cut a deal on the debt ceiling.”
